Samsung SGR-A1 kicks ass!
Nice phone from the Korean home appliance maker with a weapons division.
Google's customers (that's not you, you are the product) will love the eye tracker. Now they can make sure you actually look at the ads.
Although, apparently, Google was not really mentioned during the Korean home appliance maker with a weapons division phone intro party.
How long before they swap out Android for Tizen from under TouchWiz?
How long before Google sues the Korean home appliance maker with a weapons division?
I know it's hip and trendy to call Apple (and Jobs) arrogant, but let's not forget that journalists have been a lot more arrogant for a longer time. They are evidently also a lot stupider.
And this was just a student too.
Nice, but we still don't know.
Nice to see some nice hard numbers.
But we still don't know if Jobs is right do we?
PA consulting say:
"Note that all these tests were conducted in a test chamber, calls with the iPhone could still be established outside the chamber even when using the “death grip"
So in actual real world use performance is better than in the tests?
How much better?
The Anandtech tests seemed to suggest the iPhone 4 performs better in actual real world use, with less power than older iPhones.
Are they right?
Does being able to do more with less power, make up for having less power?
How about compared to other phones?
Why no data speeds for the blackberry 9700 and HTC HD2?
PA Consulting, just did a more scientific version of looking at the bars drop.
But if we want to know if Jobs is right when he says that all smart phones have these problems, and we're interested in real world performance, the PA consulting tests tell us next to nothing.
Anandtech says Jobs told the truth
The Antenna is Improved
From my day of testing, I've determined that the iPhone 4 performs much better than the 3GS in situations where signal is very low, at -113 dBm (1 bar).
I can honestly say that I've never held onto so many calls and data simultaneously on 1 bar at -113 dBm as I have with the iPhone 4,
The difference is that reception is massively better on the iPhone 4 in actual use.
It's amazing really to experience the difference in sensitivity the iPhone 4 brings compared to the 3GS
reception is absolutely definitely improved. I felt like I was going places no iPhone had ever gone before. There's no doubt in my mind this iPhone gets the best cellular reception yet, even though measured signal is lower than the 3GS.
How do you know they are wrong. Why do do trust bloggers, looking for page hits, whose expertise does not extend beyond counting up to 5, more than those that actually measured signal strength?
WWDC focus is mobile, iPod, iPhone, iPad.
Apple will abandon the desktop, it has in fact already stopped making Mac Pro's, iMacs, and OSX.
MacBooks already run Windows just fine.
Apple will change its name to Apple mobile Devices Inc.
Developers for Apple's devices need to have somewhere to go: MicroSoft.
